Murder and immorality, a witches’ incantation, “Double, double, toil and trouble”, and a famous sleepwalking Lady, all combine in William Shakespeare’s great tragedy, Macbeth, to create one of the most powerful accounts ever written on the corrupting effect of unfettered ambition. The “Scottish play”, whose title we dare not utter backstage, forces us to face our inability—the inability of our greatest playwright even—to define and confine the felt reality of evil.

Performed in-the-round in the intimate Firehall Theatre.
